Ex-headmaster in Delaware accused of child porn

WILMINGTON, Del. - A former headmaster of an exclusive prep school in Delaware who is accused of dealing in child pornography is waiting for a judge to determine his fate.

The judge held a bench trial Tuesday for 54-year-old Christopher Wheeler.

Two Pennsylvania brothers accused Wheeler last year of sexually abusing them decades ago. He has not been charged with abusing anyone, but authorities say they discovered some 2,000 images of child pornography after searching Wheeler's home and office at Tower Hill School last fall.

Tower Hill was founded by members of the du Pont family. The school's graduates include DuPont Co. CEO Ellen Kullman, U.S. Sen. Chris Coons and television personality Dr. Oz.

Wheeler faces at least 50 years in prison if convicted on all 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.
